The aircraft will load up in a 'ready for takeoff' state unless:

  • You are loading a previously saved Warrior II flight, in which case the aircraft configuration will be restored to what it was when that flight was saved
  • You are switching from another aircraft with the engine off, in which case the aircraft will be configured in a cold & dark state
  • You have enabled cockpit state saving from the Add-ons > Just Flight PA28 Warrior II¬†menu within the simulator,¬†in which case the aircraft configuration will be restored to what it was when you last flew the Warrior II


You can switch to a cold & dark state using the power icon on the 2D panel selector or the 'Cold and dark' option in the menu bar.
